Nick Gordon, the ex-partner of the late Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only daughter of Bobby Brown and late Whitney Houston is dead. He died at age 30. Gordon’s attorney, Joe S. Habachy confirmed his client’s death but did not give a cause of death.
However, he was said to have had black fluid coming from his mouth’, according to a released 911 dispatch audio. A dispatcher is heard saying in the 911 call: “Black stuff is coming out of his mouth and he is not breathing.”
The 30-year-old reportedly died of a suspected overdose on Christmas Day. The black fluid coming from his mouth and nostrils is reportedly consistent with an opioid overdose, which is more commonly known as heroin. Also, Gordon reportedly suffered a series of heart attacks after the overdose and later died at Altamonte Springs Hospital.
Gordon’s death comes nearly five years after Brown was found face-down and unresponsive in a bathtub in January 2015. She died after six months in a coma. Investigators with the medical examiner’s office were not able to determine exactly how Brown died. An autopsy showed that she had morphine, cocaine, alcohol and prescription drugs in her body, but the medical examiner couldn’t determine if she killed herself, if someone else killed her or if her death was accidental.
Her family blamed Gordon, accusing him in the lawsuit of giving her a “toxic cocktail” before putting her face-down in the water. Gordon was never charged in the case, but he was found responsible in a wrongful death lawsuit and an Atlanta judge ordered him to pay $36 million to Brown’s estate.
Houston brought Nick Gordon into her household as an orphan at the age of 12, raising him and her daughter after divorcing Bobby Brown in 2007. Gordon wore a large tattoo of Houston’s face on his arm and called the singer ‘mom,’ but she never fully adopted him or included him in the will. After Houston’s death, Gordon and Bobbi Kristina went public with their romance.
“Despite all of the incredible challenges Nick faced over the last few years I can honestly say that he worked hard to hold his head up and stay sober and that he genuinely wanted a happy healthy life with his family more than anything else,” Habachy said in a statement.
